We keep Asheville thriving by producing diverse and eclectic programming that inspires our listeners to build connections across our communities and to discover new music and ideas.Services: Broadcasting, Publishing, Music & Song
Asheville FM is nonprofit, volunteer-driven, community radio at its best. We offer a diversity of programming as diverse as the community we serve. That includes community journalists producing hyper-focused local news in both English and in Spanish; talk shows that run the gamut from sports to philosophy; and the most eclectic freeform mix of music that you can hear – from DJs with a scholarly appreciation for the genres they represent. All of this is from a community of passionate volunteers who want to give the microphone to other members of the community who don’t have the opportunity in other media outlets.
And, Asheville FM is more than just a radio station – we are nonprofit with the mission to impact our community in positive ways with services like youth & community broadcasting and podcasting training, a live performance studio bringing you local musicians and touring bands, and partnerships with other organizations to bring attention to local musicians, artist, activists and the movers and shakers of Asheville.

Other: Out of 3,000 affiliated community media organizations, we won the 2022 Hometown Media Award for Best Community Radio Station. We’re not an award-winning community radio station because we play good music, but because we make space on the radio dial for voices and perspectives that have previously been marginalized and excluded, and create a platform for engagement and connection that’s specific to serving the needs of this community and the people in it.
